"-gi-" is a soft 'g' in almost every case.

I would be willing to bet that every such case has a vowel after the 'i'. I can't think of a single instance of the sequence "soft g - i - consonant".

It depends on the type of vowel and on the next consonant.
(but it's still English, so there are more loanwords than not and the rules don't matter - old Germanic didn't have a soft 'g', but in Romance languages it's always soft before certain vowels)

Anyway: gibe, gigantic, gin, giraffe, gist...

... this is my signature!

After reading through a few of these posts I've had the sneaking suspicion everyone thinks we sound like cowboys or hippies out here. Lol.

Guilty. I was thinking you'd sound more hippy/ NorCal. If you hadn't said Oregon, I would have been confused and guessed Missouri.

Gah! D'oh! Those are all words I'm familiar with, too.

OK, you win. Never mind. But I'm still going to pronounce GIF with a hard G, because Vosur said so, and he's the Grammar God, or grammar guru, or something like that (notice that those are all hard Gs). But why does "German" start with a soft G? :head explodes:

Gift, girl, grab, go, glad, great, gimp, gas...

Ahh nevermind, I see why you were listing those now. Ahh well.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.
